Differences with Chidambaram a closed chapter

Miriti (WB): Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday said the differences between him and Home Minister P Chidambaram were a "closed chapter" and asserted that the government "is in command of things".

"Myself and Mr Chidambaram addressed the media and the chapter is closed and he (Chidambaram) admitted it. So there is no no question…..," he told NDTV at his ancestral home where he is currently staying for performing Durga puja.

Mukherjee admitted that in a multi-party political system in the party there can be "differences sometimes".

He was asked whether the "public making up" between him and Chidambaram signaled the end of the rift.
